Enjoy The Buzz

Our taproom was built in the 1960s as an auto showroom for Volkswagen so it features a 180-degree glass facade that allows our guests to enjoy the downtown skyline and watch the cars buzz by. We wanted to stay true to the original design so you’ll see mid-century modern decor throughout. Plush couches, textured walls and quartz countertops help accentuate the eclectic vibe. During the day, the taproom is flooded with natural light, but at night, it takes on a completely different vibe of city lights and sexy ambiance.

Merriwater

5.6%
Pale Ale - American
Passenger
Brewed with Citra & Cascade then subtle dry-hop additions of Simcoe, Citra, Cascade & Amarillo. Merriwater, named after the neighborhood that Alex grew up in, pours orange with a slight haze & nice white lacing. On the nose, you might gather aromas of stone fruit, candied oranges & even peaches. The first sip will introduce you to notes of citrus & tropical fruits followed by hints of grapefruit peel, passion fruit & pine/resin. There is a hint of slight malt sweetness from a small portion of honey malt. Medium-bodied with a soft bitterness. This was the second ever Passenger beer and we hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it.
